The Third Annual Report of Camera Obscura will showcase “unique, antique and experimental films” on December 30, 2017 in San Francisco at the New Nothing Cinema.
Co-Directors Jonathan Marlow and Amanda Salazar are committed to evoking the spirit of the original Camera Obscura Film Society (COFS), that began in 1957. The revitalized event represents a festival of recent and restored narrative and non-fiction works premiering regionally. Twelve films will be screened over the course of the day with filmmakers and special guests in attendance.
Events are presented on behalf of COFS. Admissions vary per screening and all day passes available for purchase.
Tickets can be purchased at the event for CASH ONLY.
